Everyone has some sort of fandom they are in love with. I happen to have two and since I already wrote about one I figured I should write about the other. I know Marvel comics are supposed to be better than the movies but since I haven’t read any (yet) I figured that I would just start with the top 8 reasons why you should be a Marvel movie fan.

1. The Hot Actors/Actresses

It's no secret that Marvel has a gift for picking hot actors/actresses to play their superheroes. I mean you have the Chris trifecta (Evans, Hemsworth, and Pratt), but then you have women like Scarlet Johansson and Elizabeth Olsen. Marvel really makes it hard not to gawk at the actors.

2. The Kick-Butt Action

Ok, so admittedly there was a different word I wanted to use there but wasn’t sure if I was allowed to. Marvel is very good at choreographing their fight scenes to make them look real and action packed. Being an action movie girl myself I have seen a ton of fight scenes and no one does them quite like Marvel.

3. The Talent

While the actors are hot that is not the only thing they have going for them. They are also very talented. Marvel does a great job at casting the right actor for the right role. I mean Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark through and through. They are one in the same. And could you imagine any other than Chris Evans playing Captain America? I couldn’t. These actors play these roles so well that its hard to imagine anyone else in that role.

4. The Subtle Humor

With all the action-packed drama there has got to be some relief somewhere. Well, Marvel has that, too. "Thor: Ragnarok" was chalk full of humor. From the nicknames to Tony picking a fight with one of the Avengers, there is always some sort of comic relief.

5. Character development

Marvel does well with most of their characters’ development. They give most their big heroes their origin stories and then brings them into the superhero life. With every movie the character is in, they add layers to their personality. With Iron Man, he went from genius billionaire playboy philanthropist to the guy that has problems like PTSD, just like your average Joe.

6. Sequel Mania

Marvel is not shy when it comes to coming out with sequels. "Captain America", "Iron Man", and "Thor" all have three solo movies on top of the Avengers group movies and more to come.

7. The Diversity

The diversity of their cast is amazing. They have strong lead females, as well as Asian-American and African-American stars. They play no favorites and truly seek out those best for the role no matter gender, race, or ethnicity.

8. Game Toppers

Game Toppers

I don’t know how, but somehow, they always seem to top themselves. Every new movie that they put out always seems to raise to the top in the box offices. Each movie doesn’t necessarily top the one before it but they each bring their own elements that make them just as good as the last.

But we still say Roll MF Tide!

We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

1. Immediate sadness

What do you mean I have to wake up at 9 a.m. to get ready?

2. Bracing yourself for the worst

It's a marathon not a sprint ladies and gentleman.

3. Accepting the game is going to happen

Rain or shine we are all in that student section screaming our heads off.

4. Trying to wear the least amount clothes possible without being naked on the Quad

Is it me or does it get 10 times more hot the minute you walk on to the quad?

5. Shedding a tear when you walk out your front door once you feel the heat and humidity on your skin

Is it fall yet?

6. Drowning your sorrows inside a Red Solo cup at 11:30 a.m. at a fraternity tailgate

Maybe I'll forget about the humidity if I start frat hopping now.

7. Getting in line to go through security realizing it'll take an hour to actually get inside Bryant Denny

More security is great and all but remember the heat index in Alabama? Yeah, it's not easy being smushed like sardines before even getting into Bryant Denny.

8. Feeling the sweat roll down every part of your body

Oh yeah I am working on my tan and all but what is the point of showering before kick off?

9. Attempting to cheer on the Tide, but being whacked in the head with a shaker by the girl behind you.

Shakers are tradition, but do we have to spin it around in a full 360 every two seconds? I have a migraine from just thinking about it.

10. Leaving a quarter into the game because Alabama is kicking ass and you're about to have a heat stroke.

I'll watch the rest in air conditioning thank you very much!

We may not love the 2:30 kickoffs but Roll Tide!

I Made Emma Chamberlain's Mediocre Vegan Cookies, And They're Pretty Incredible

Emma and her vegan cookies have made their way into my heart, and are here to stay.

One day, I went down the black hole that is 'YouTube at 3 am' and discovered my favorite social media influencer of all time: Emma Chamberlain. I started binge watching her videos every night for about a week, where I came across her "Cooking With Emma" series. I decided that I wanted to give her vegan antics a go for myself.

I've never cooked or baked anything with the intention of it being vegan, so not only is that new territory for me, but I've never even eaten a vegan cookie. The only reason I'm doing this is because Emma did, and she is aesthetic goals.

To start the journey of vegan baking, I took to Pinterest, just like Emma, and found this recipe to use. Although the video that inspired all of this used a gluten free recipe, I opted for only vegan, because I'm allergic to most of the ingredients that make things gluten-free.


In true Emma style, I used a whisk to combine the wet ingredients together, making sure to use her special technique.


Then, I did the same thing with the dry ingredients.


After that, I dumped everything together and combined all of the ingredients.


Once they were combined, I chopped up a vegan chocolate bar, because Emma and I like chocolate chunk cookies, not chocolate chip, there's a difference.


Now that everything is combined, I made balls of dough and stuck it on a pan, and baked them while I binged more Emma, because what else would I be doing in my spare time?



The recipe said to make the balls a lot smaller, but we aren't perfect, so I made them gigantic. In my head, I thought the worst thing that could happen was it turn into one big cookie, but that's a whole other video you need to watch.

I took them out of the oven, and they were brown on the top, but still a little doughy. At this point I was tired of waiting and eager to eat them, so I disappointingly set them aside to cool, which only lasted a minute or so before I snagged one up to try.



The taste was definitely one I've never associated with cookies, and came to the conclusion that if I decided to go vegan, it would be doable with these cookies and Emma Chamberlain by my side.



Emma inspired me to get out of my comfort zone, which is a reoccurring theme throughout her channel, and I'm happy to be apart of it. She taught me that even if mediocre cookies is all you have, eat them with pride because you made them yourself.
